L.A. County Raceway – The high desert of southern California – by RJ
This weekend is the annual Day in the Dirt event, which attracts a lot of industry people, along with weekend warriors, and Hollywood stunt people.
We had it all as far as weather – wind, cold, sun, dust, rain, mud …. and did I mention wind? It was incredibly windy, making racing tough at times, and even tough to be a spectator.
The race I was competing in is the Stunt-Man Grand Prix. Each team is made up of two riders. Jeremy McGrath was teamed with Mouse McCoy, new Honda MX Team Manager Erik Kehoe was teamed with Jeff Emig. Honda Racing manager Chuck Miller was teamed with Honda tech Mike G. And on and on.
Each rider does one lap, and then passes a wrist band to his team-mate to ride the next lap. It’s great fun. I’ll have more on the event during the week, but I at least wanted to share a few of these photos with you.
The team of Erik Kehoe and Jeff Emig won, with Jeremy and his team-mate Mouse McCoy second.
